This place is always packed at lunchtime

Go early or make sure you book, as this place is very popular with the locals at lunch timer. The lunch menu is simple straight forward food, cooked well at a great price.

Had lovely meal here with friends recently so returned with family and wasn't disappointed. Food delicious, early bird menu good value and good sized portions, food well presented and freshly cooked, staff welcoming will definitely be returning sooner rather than later.

We called in and had the bread starter, BLT baguette and a grilled chicken Caesar salad. The food was really good, the portions plentiful and the service and surroundings were great. We both really enjoyed this gem of a restaurant and will call again next time we visit Formby

Cant believe this is not ranked number one. The staff are lovely but you are never rushed so the atmosphere is very relaxed. I have eaten in every restaurant and pub in Formby regularly and the Left Bank is the only one I can say "I have never had a bad meal" . The food is freshly cooked not food... More

We have eaten here on occasion because of its central location. The competitive prices attract customers, but the food is not as good as ready made M+S. We have found the staff unwelcoming.
